My understanding is that if a computer is not properly removed from AD, say like the machine has crashed. You will need to manually remove it from AD.

Please confirm or correct me.

Yes, you are correct.  You would want to go into ADUC...Active Director Users and Computers and remove it by right-clicking and then choosing to delete.

This method is also considered a proper way of removing a computer object.

That is what I thought. There is a bit of an argument here and I needed confirmation.

Thank you
